Best Western is a great place to stay for the price you pay. Everything you need like a refrigerator, microwave, iron, and more is included in your price, event the internet!!! The beds are comfortable and the breakfast is great.

We came to town for a weekend getaway and a baseball game. We got what we needed. A comfortable room with the amenities we required. Very nice and accessible location. We'll probably return there next time we're in Springfield.

We really enjoyed staying here. The cost was great. It was clean. There was a lovely breakfast available. There were snacks available at the front desk along with anything you may have forgotten. Just a call away. We would definitely stay again. It was in a great location. Not too far from anything.

We stay at this property every time we visit the Springfield area, and the quality of the rooms and service just keeps getting better. Although the rooms are small, they are well appointed, clean and very comfortable. The staff is friendly, efficient, and always willing to help with any need. The free breakfast is real bonus for those of us... More

What a find!! The entire property is in tip top shape: tastefully appointed in modern-retro style. The staff are most helpful. And the breakfast couldn't be better!! Restored antique cars and their occupants are seen staying here, adding to the retro atmosphere. Absolutely worth the drive off the freeway.

My husband found this motel and thought it would be fun: he was right. 2 nights. We were treated very well by staff; accommodations were perfect. We even got a private tour of room 409! Price was right.

This is a great choice for a quiet place to stay with a limited budget for your travals. Food and other stores are not quite within walking distance, but they are otherwise close. The staff was very helpful and made me feel very welcome.

Shark615: Thank you for your review, we appreciate the 5 star review. You are right we don't have any real stores within walking distance but they aren't too far away. Several restaurants within a mile radius which may or may not be walking distance depending on how far you want to walk. But I am glad to hear that you... More

Finally stayed on route 66 motel. And it was great. Nice and clean at a good price. Everything worked properly in the room. The grounds were kept up perfectly, and it made you seam like you were transformed to back in the day when route 66 was the road to be on. The nostalgia of being their brought back so... More

Rooms are cozy and very clean. Hotel is located close to the main road, which makes it very loud because of the traffic at the intersection. Lobby is retro and goes well with the older vehicles parked out front near the gas pumps which are decorative. Property is clean, and both clerks at the counter were very helpful. $50 for... More

hdslam: Thank you for your review. We are located on Glenstone Ave which is one of the major roads in Springfield, which makes it convenient to find us. Traffic noise can be slightly louder than other times during the day. But our rooms are updated as you said with flat screen televisions and wi fi access is available in all... More

Everything about Rail Haven said pride of ownership to me. It is a fifties style motel and that is good and bad. Bad if you must have a more modern look but good if you enjoy letting a place take you back in time for a bit. Fixtures, furniture, bedding, air conditioning, cleanliness, etc. were as up to date and... More
